The Minmatar one doesn't look... well like a scrapheap... IMO it's not that much in line wiht all the other minnie ships...

If you look closely the minmatar ones 4 front 'fins' all look like they have a movable base (like a hinge). I would literally have an orgasm (ok slightly overstated) if they moved to that 'shown' position while at speed, and moved into a more X type shape when it slows down.

Man I hope that Amarr one will really be like that. Those 8 turrets in one line remind me of the old ships of the line. Broadside 4tw! So don't move those turrets!

Asgeir is already an employee of CCP.

Check the gallery info, and his mail ([email protected]).

So all those designs are actually "true", but nothing tells us if they are the actual Tier3 BSs or just old designs.

Btw, even if I don't like the Minma and if I have some serious doubt on the Gall one, I must admit Asgeir is a really good painter/designer/whateveryouwant.

"So all those designs are actually "true", but nothing tells us if they are the actual Tier3 BSs or just old designs."

Well, pretty much all other designs from that portfolio did make it into game and were used for quite recent ships (carriers, titans, fighters) ... so would say a fair chance these battleships designs are for tier.3 ships. The signature on Amarr ship drawing makes it clear it was made in 2006, too ^^;

(and the more i keep looking at that Gallente battleship, the more it makes me want to train for it >.< Caldari battleship better look damn good...)

Why the hell don't you want symmetry?


Because symmetry gets boring when always employed. The Caldari lack of symmetry adds a legitimate racial signature to the design.

In the immortal words of Vader;

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

It's a freightor FFS! It hasn't enough armor. It's shaped like a flying brick. Where is the sleek panache of the geddon, arbie, apoc, or providence? Where is the omgplatingeverywhere style that we Amarr so love? How can an Amarr exude the arrogance and extremes of righteousness required by our blood if we are flying around in a ship that looks NAKED for all intents and purposes?

I mean really it's quite obscene!

I don't like the minmatar one really... it should look more like the cyclone so jide won't fly it. The gallente one kinda looks like a wet seal. Amarr one is HOT. I will never fly anything else again if that is the final ship. I mean... SEEEEEXXXXYYYYYY. And to the sayers that it has not enough armor plating... hopefully it has enough firepower that it needs to expose more ship to keep it from going nuclear!

Can't wait to see the Caldari one and PLEASE DEVS please make that amarr ship final!

The Minmatar are described in the chronicles somewhere (can never find it when I want to post referencing it :P) as being a race just starting to reach for the stars, but exhibiting the best engineering skills seen in the eve galaxy.

They were then reduced practically to rubble by the amarr (who also took a lot of the population for there slave labour) the result was the early minmatar ship designs being made from whatever low-tech parts the matari could scrounge together or build.
It has now been, reportedly over a century since the minmatar rebel forces (combined with the amarr empires defeat at the hands of the jovian directorate) forced the amarr to retreat from what is now known as minmatar space and the matari were able to start rebuilding.

In short, it makes sense that newer ship designs should be a lot cleaner and built in a more orderly fashion, note that they still can't afford to splash out on fancy exteriors, massively thick armour plate and so on .. I personally feel that the new battleship fits fine with all this.

As to what it actually looks like, I think its a bit hard to tell from that picture.

Yes but the Apoc is kind of like a mullet - business in the front, party in the back.

Now I must flog myself and repent that I have ever compared the gracefull powerhouse of the Imperial Navy to a hillbilly haircut.

Need I point out that its entirely possible that the Amarr ship has internal armour belts.

This is not an unknown practice, Indeed slathering armour to only the outside of a ship is actually one of the least effective ways of designing an armour system.

The amarr BS in that picture is simply teh best looking ship EVE would have to offer me besides the Nidhoggur, Hel and Naglfar. Its simply sexy plain and simple. I'd finally have a ship to fit the mighty Tach too and be able to sleep at night.

As for the minmatar... I think I'd like it after a few beers. Edit : It still looks to me like a doberman.

the Raven actually looks like a raven the Scorp looks like a scorp, i sure hope the tier 3 will actually look like the predator as well otherwise it would be pretty lame.

finally someone cares more about the looks of ships than the stats Very Happy.
i like the artist's web page. its cool if freelancers work with ccp and bringin new and fresh ideas into the game.
the minmatar ships is looking too disciplined, it should have more of the the trashy looks.
the amarr bs has a wide opening on the front making it carrier-like. i dont think that amarr should have a bulky bs since the geddon and apoc are more a kind of golden ram then a golden ...ya know..post wagon mixed with trash can.
the gallente one has that organic looks which imo arent bad at all. but the long (looooong) proportions arent the strenght of a gallente bs imo. gallente ships should be a kind of pseudo-bulky. it makes gal ships look a bit unmaneuverable, yet agil due to jet engines at the right places.

"Yes but the Apoc is kind of like a mullet - business in the front, party in the back."

... And suddenly, it makes perfect sense. So that's why so many Amarr wears hoods in public.

to hide that haircut which reflects their life philosophy... o,o

Now I'm rather liking these designs, oh yes I am.

Amarr: Am I alone in seeing something of an Amarr/Minmatar hybrid in all that exposed internal structure? Maybe the design originated from the desk of some engineer in the Ammatar Mandate... all those engines imply some serious speed, so I can kind of see this as a fast-moving, close-range formation shredder, with, as has been mentioned, a significant dronebay.

Minmatar: I'll echo earlier sentiments that this seems to have sprung from the same engineers responsible for the Thrasher and Cyclone. It definitely has the look of a full-fledged warship, a complete concept, to it, rather than the raider look of the Tempest or the chunky turtle that is the Typhoon. Highly balanced all-round capabilities, with a significant dronebay? It definitely speaks of versatility rather than lending itself to overspecialisation or any particular role on the battlefield.

Gallente: Assuming that's a single hull rather than a split hull like the Megathron, I'm liking this design; it's definitely a big brother to the Thorax. I'd agree that the engines on the disk need to be beefed up a little, even it it does look as though they're merely channelling thrust from chambers somewhere in the mail hull. I for one would love to see turrets spaced along the rim of the disc, as well as the fore and aft clusters.

if the tier 3 BS goes on this "khanid innovation" idea, it'll be completely and entirely useless

seriously, I'm thinking you might be kidding and I'm overreacting

shield tank with 4 mid slots? missile boat with only 4 launchers? 4 turret mounts with no turret bonuses? holy mother of god, it sure is true to khanid design, IE frickin useless... how you figure that ship could be used is beyond me, other than being fodder for the real ships

The new Amarr desighn rocks. Something that doesn't look like a bannana, including being all yellow. =) Overall it does give the feeling of a carrier, rather Galactica like. And that belt of weapon emplacements along the side is just dead sexy. Laughing
